News & Events

As a cultural institution the Theodor Fontane Archive offers alongside its tours and cultural educational offerings a diverse events programme. We provide information regularly on our blog or in news releases. In 2019 we placed particular emphasis on the celebration of Fontane’s 200th  birthday.  


In the archive’s blog we report on research projects and events, we present finds out of and new approaches to our holdings and give miscellaneous insights into the archive’s day-to day.



Here we will announce upcoming readings, lectures, discussions and presentations in the event space of the Villa Quandt or at cooperating partners.
